This paper summarizes the discussion at an AMCIS 2005 panel concerned with the significant use of e-learning in the corporate environment. The panel discussion considered e-learning in the both University and corporate environments with the objective of determining what lessons one might learn from the other. While both uses of e-learning are in their infancy, both are expanding very significantly, both have similar but slightly varying objectives, and both have similar drivers and constraints. The paper concludes by providing a list of potential problem areas and matters for consideration in providing education in this way, including the design of learning modules and their content, the size of these modules and their relevance to the workplace.
